What I Ate, Monday, May 23, 2011
May 23, 2011 § 2 Comments
In what I plan on being a 1-week experiment, I’ve decided to track my food intake for a week. For many years, I have been stuck around 160 pounds. I’m not fat but I do have some extra weight around my waist that I would like to get rid of. I should be doing more core work but I think the biggest problem is that I like to pig out. Too often I eat more than I should because I like to eat.
Out of curiosity, I want to see how much (especially with calories) I actually eat so I’m going to track & post it here. I’ll preface this with two comments. First, I’m pretty boring with what I eat–the same things most mornings & lunch. Second, and I already know this has happened, the fact that I’m tracking what I eat will affect what and how much I actually eat.

1 oz LAY’S® Tangy Carolina BBQ Chips (160)

A pretty good day, methinks. I did not run but did spend nearly an hour mowing the lawn so that burned some extra calories. The item that surprised me was the 230 calories for a plain blueberry bagel.
